Tour guide was very good. The place was pretty empty, so you had a nice cave experience. In general I found the English in Kuching to be better than Singapore, so we got all our questions answered and then some...discussions on Sarawak politics was especially interesting.

From the entrance of the park, visitors need to climb up to 4-5 storey staircase to the entrance of the cave. From the entrance, there were wooden staircases that formed a trail into the cave but not all in good form due to humidity and wood tends to rot due to moisture. However, the view in the cave was fantastic!... More

Once you arrive at the Fairy Cave, you have to climb a tower to the actual cave entrance. Then after a few more stairs, the cavern opens up into a vast and impressive chamber. Climb to the top to the lookout and search around for the fairy statue. In the chamber above and behind the fairy statue, you'll notice some... More

There are lots of stairs to gain entry into the body of the cave but when you get there it is quite impressive. Some of the steps can be quite slippery. It would be beneficial to take a good torch into the cave with you. Worth the effort to gain entry but take your time to enjoy the view once... More

Compare with Wind Cave, the Fairy Cave is more challenging and fun. The sloping stairs inside the cave is one of the special part of it. We went to the cave with a local guide, explained the history and the formation of stalactites while climbing inside. Not many bats inside, as the day we went were a rainy day, the... More

This cave is just like the dragon palace for chinese or the home for the fairy. It is extremely beautiful and you will me surprise if you know how is the formation of the cave.

We left Wind Cave and managed to catch service 3 to Fairy Cave. Please check the bus schedule on the day to see if it fits your plan. At the road junction, a sign pointed that Fairy Cave is 300 m away. It is definitely not true. So be prepared to walk far further than 300 m. Upon reaching the... More
